What do you think of All-Star games? A great way to see the stars or a total waste of time? Take Kidzworld's online poll and let us know what you think.

All-Star games are supposed to showcase the best a sport has to offer. They're supposed to give fans a chance to see their favorite superstars play together at the same time and players a chance to show who's the hardest hitter, the fastest pitcher or the best dunker.

But lately, all-star games have been all-garbage, all-boring and altogether a waste of time. They're about as exciting to watch as a documentary on the history of lint. The so-called all-stars usually play with as much energy as a sloth on morphine and the games are nothing like the games during the regular season or playoffs.

No Hitting, No Winners and No-Shows

The NHL All-Star Game might as well be a figure skating competition. The players never hit, fight or play defense. The 2002 All-Star Game in baseball ended in a tie after 11 innings because the players were too tired. The NBA's All-Star weekend used to be worth watching because of the Slam-Dunk Contest. But, even that kinda bites now because none of the top dunkers, like Vince or Kobe, ever show up. So, why even bother having All-Star games? Just cancel them and start the playoffs earlier - because that's where the real excitement is, anyway.

1I used to love all-star games. Now they all-suck! I'm a huge sports fanatic and I expect better. Normal exhibition games are better. Sheesh!

1 Exhibition games are better because the fact that it can be a rivalry or a good game. Well this year's NFL All-Star game was a really close one. That's what all fans want, right?
